When a dozen people in one party descent on a business all at once, you expect a bit of confusion - there was none. The lovely women of Kayak Tahoe talked these newbies through the ins and outs of renting kayaks and selecting single and tandem kayaks. Once that was settled, we were given our life jackets and a quick... More

My husband and I rented a double kayak for an hour. It was easy to locate, rent from, and definitely helped make our trip to Lake Tahoe amazing. This lake has just breathtaking views, and it's so with it to rent one of the boats and get the full picture!!

We joined the four hour, four-mile tour. It was a lot of fun but you need to be in good physical shape. First you hike down the hill to get into the kayaks (so you need to climb back up the hill when you're finished). You kayak to an island, then climb up a lot of rocks (this is hard)... More

The staff was really friendly and very enthusiastic about what they were doing. It was my first time on a stand up paddle board and the guy explained really well how to use it!

Kayak Tahoe has locations on multiple beaches on the lake that let you decide the kind of trip you want to take. The guy at the beach we chose was easy to deal with and very helpful. We had experience so he didn't hassel us with lengthy instructions and let us go on our way after giving us the rules.... More

We rented kayaks by the hour at Emerald Bay. The staff was unfriendly and just kind of going thru the motions. They must buy the cheapest kayaks available....holes in the bottom? Nobody showed my husband how to adjust the seat and for the life of us could not get that cheap seat to fit right. (yes we have kayaked before).... More

The ladies running the location from the pier were very informative and friendly. Check in was a breeze. ID and CC and your out the door. SUPs were $20/hr. we got an Ocean (brand) double kayak. I think it was $28/hr for a double or $50 for 2/hr. they supply kayak, vests and paddles for that price. My family of... More

Had a amazing mini vacation kayaking around Lake Tahoes east shore. We got there early evening just as the day vacationers were leaving. Parking was a sinch and the state park employee let us slide on the price for parking cause they only except cash. We will definitely be making this a regular trip. The hotel we stayed at on... More

My husband & I took the Emerald Bay Guided Tour experience on July 12th, 2013 and it was incredible, fun and professional. Making the reservation however was tricky, don't try to make reservation by email. Best is to call them at 530-544-2011 and make your reservation then. We will be using them again for sure, and try a different kayak... More

My 10 year old and I had a blast. On the phone the folks sounded abrasive but in person they were great. The instruction was pertinent and the gentleman made it really fun and interesting. We had a great time.
